I am a loser because I cannot get off work to go, nor can I round up money for the flight.

Would love to pound beers with you fellas tho! Enjoy!

I spoke with Bill Mitchell today and can confirm that he will be at CooperCon. The two of us will have a 45-minute conversation on-stage, Saturday, November 20th. I’ll be modifying the schedule to accommodate the change.

Don't think I'm familiar with Mary Jean Fryar. Can someone give me a brief?
She's the FBI agent who got Sheridan Peterson's DNA and was interviewed on History about it.

Wish I could make it but not able to this year. I hope the CooperCons will continue as I'd love to be there, but have had some human and pet stuff and cannot afford it atm. I'm not sure I'll be able to send the books, Bruce, or if they do whether they'll get there on time. Perhaps I'd be able to get some bookmarks or a poster made to advertise. Will keep you posted.

Either way, hope everybody takes lots of pics and maybe some video, and has an AWESOME time! (Though they wouldn't have said awesome in 1971. Groovy?) ;)

Who's going to CooperCon, and who wants to go to Heisson Friday afternoon? Someone with a car, preferably...

So are Flo ( who looks like she saw a ghost in the photo), and Tina and the  less celebrated stewardess aware of this big event?  Were attempts made to get them there?  It would sure be two of the  biggest guests you could get.

The feds in the mid 1970s and mid-1980s clearly believed DBC survived since they actively considered schemes to get him to confess, offer him immunity deals, etc.

Bruce: Very good point. I think this is overlooked.  The FBI clearly wanted the public to believe he died.  Everything they said made it look like that, and even to this day Larry Carr is saying he died.  But why have a worldwide manhunt for so many years?  That seems like a good amount of government waste that at some point would have raised a red flag.  If you're convinced he died, why not use all the government resources to comb the area of the flight path?  Go after missing persons? Go after unclaimed bodies? Do an analysis on the money and truly try to find out if it got spent?  If the FBI had made an effort to collect only the San Francisco series bills, they could have used probability to determine if the money was likely spent.  My feeling is they highly suspected that he lived.  It looks bad for the FBI that this is unsolved, and it might look worse if a regular citizen solved it and they didn't.

I like how you think, F Castle. Smile.

Also, the Army Data Analyst, “Anonymous,” will be taking part in the Suspects Panel discussion at CooperCon. Therefore, after CC21, he’ll no longer be anonymous.

Whoa!

Nicky called me a few days ago and said he might be going on a road trip through the LZ area on Friday. Call him, or PM. I would think that Heisson would be in the itinerary.

If I understand correctly, Dr Edwards has five (5) brand new search area based on new fop calculations. Anyone examining these new sites should be followed closely.
Hope you can and do follow this .... listen to Darren's latest Edwards podcast. Its worth absorbing in detail ....

I’d just like to note that D B Cooper 50 th is getting a lot of press from the local Casino in Richfield. Ilani Casino is giving away $200,000 in drawings on Nov 20 and Nov 21 !

Well I posted about this big event on one of the forums I am a long time member of.  Music.  I wont say any more. But, I am just wondering, if my wife toss's me out the back door tomorrow and I go  to the Airport and grab a flight to Portland, can someone buy a ticket to this or do you have to be invited?  IE, have some type of evidence or something to attend?  Or if you pay, your in?  Or if someone just wants to meet some of the members can they just go to the bar that this is going to be at?  Rules please

Yo, Fan, if your wife  kicks you out the back door and you can find your way north to Vancouver, WA from Portland, Oregon, you can be my guest - but you're gonna have to tell me all about your journey. I am partial to those engulfed by the Vortex.
